Perched over the Miami River, Casablanca serves some of the best seafood in town. The setting is a big draw – with tables on a long wooden deck just above the water, and the odd seagull winging past. But the fresh fish is the real star here.

Start off with oysters (half price all day on Wednesdays) or grilled octopus, before moving on to a sizzling parrillada (grilled platter) piled high with prawns, calamari, oysters, clams and grilled fish. Casablanca's fish market is right next door.
